Tackling multi-platform live streaming23 August 2016
New for the European market at IBC is Lightspeed Live Stream, aimed at bringing broadcasts and OTT together in the live space. Telestream said this enterprise-scale live streaming platform was developed to provide content OTT to end users watching on their device of choice.
Another European first for IBC is Lightspeed Live Capture. This hardware and software appliance provides encoding of real-time SD, HD and UHD into common high-quality mezzanine formats in use worldwide, while simultaneously supplying a streaming proxy for each channel being processed.
The company is also providing European debuts for some capabilities within its Vantage software.
“Through an Adaptive Bitrate Optimisation feature, Vantage can significantly reduce delivery bandwidth needs and slash content distribution network costs by up to 40 per cent within multiscreen distribution applications,” the company claimed.
